Product Overview

The 2014 San Felice Il Grigio Chianti Classico Gran Selezione releases fragrances that linger beautifully, with scents of sweet violets that meld into smooth, spicy impressions of tobacco leaf. This is a full-bodied red, velvety smooth, marked by ripe, succulent tannins harmoniously integrated with the acidity. Perfect with wild game, roasted and grilled meats, as well as well-aged cheeses.

Appellation: Chianti Classico Gran Selezione DOCG
Aging: 24 months, 50% in large Slavonian oak casks and 50% in French oak barriques, followed by 8 months of bottle aging prior to release

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Spice and toast aromas are followed by flavors of cherry, plum, wild herb and tobacco in this firm, dry red. Racy acidity keeps this focused, with a finish evoking tobacco and tea. Best from 2020 through 2032. 3,300 cases made, 2,150 cases imported." -BS, 10/15/18

"It's so encouraging to see a winery produce these results in what was a very challenging vintage. The 2014 Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Grigio offers ripe cherry aromas with subtle hints of cured leather and smoked bacon at the back. This is a medium-weight wine with a fiber-rich and juicy finish. The blend is 80% Sangiovese with other red grapes. Each variety was fermented apart in stainless steel (with up to 22 days of maceration). After malolactic fermentation, it was aged in various sizes of oak vessels for 24 months. Some 40,000 bottles were made." -ML, 10/31/18

"San Felice's Chianti Classico Gran Selezione Il Grigio is powerful and savory in 2014. The cooler growing season has brought out a whole range of floral/herbal notes that play off the Sangiovese fruit nicely. Deceptive in its mid-weight structure, the 2014 packs more than enough punch to drink well for at least a number of years." -AG, Feb/2019
